Emerald City Comicon hosts a reunion of the Image Comics founders for their 25th anniversary on FRIDAY MARCH 3rd at 1:00 PM with an exclusive signing to follow (details at the link)!
Twenty-five years ago, a group of comics artists looked at the difference between what they were capable of and what they were being given, and left the promise of steady work for new pastures. The result was Image Comics, which has grown from an upstart group to a comics publisher that has changed the course of the industry. Image’s 25th anniversary year begins with this special event, a very rare gathering of original founders Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino, Marc Silvestri, and Whilce Portacio, moderated by Robert Kirkman.
Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) is the premier comic book & pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest. Join us March 2-5, 2017. For tickets and more information please go to the website: www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
Imagine a sisterhood—across all creeds and cultures. An unspoken agreement that we, as women, will support and encourage one another. That we will remember we don’t know what struggles each of us may be facing elsewhere in our lives and so we will assume that each of us is doing our best…
So begins WE: A Manifesto for Women—an inspiring, empowering, and provocative manifesto for change written by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel. Change that we can all affect, one woman at a time. Change that provides a crucial and timely antidote to the “have-it-all” superwoman culture and instead focuses on what will make each and every one of us happier and more free. Change that provides an answer to the nagging sense of “is that it?” that almost all of us can succumb to when we wake in the dead of night.
Gillian Anderson is an award-winning film, television, and theater actor and producer, writer, and activist. She currently lives in London with her children.
Jennifer Nadel is an award-winning broadcast journalist, qualified attorney, writer, and activist. American-born, she also lives in London with her three sons.
Buy a $28 ticket which includes a signed copy of WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere to attend this event. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will take place at The New York Society for Ethical Culture (2 W 64th St. New York, NY 10023)
